Helen Moore is a British ecopoet, socially engaged artist and writer.
She has published three ecopoetry collections, Hedge Fund, And Other Living Margins (Shearsman Books, 2012), ECOZOA (Permanent Publications, 2015) — acclaimed by John Kinsella as ‘a milestone in the journey of ecopoetics’ — and The Mother Country (Awen Publications, 2019) exploring aspects of British colonial history.
Helen offers an online mentoring programme, Wild Ways to Writing, and works with students internationally.
In 2020 her work was nominated for the Forward and Pushcart Prizes and received grants from the Royal Literary Fund and Arts Council England. She’s currently collaborating with Cape Farewell in Dorset on RiverRun, a project working with scientists and farmers in Dorset to examine pollution in Poole Bay and its river-systems.
Helen was the first member to feature her work as part of the ClimateCultures Quarantine Connection series. We shared the video of her reading her poem Ice, an Elegy, on Day 1 of the 40-day series.
